    If this is the recommended method by the supplier of the flooring you should check the small print on there guarantee as some can be quiet stringent on how it's fitted etc to be covered.

    Unless the concrete floor is old I would expect there should already be a dpm in it, you can normally see it where it's raised up round the edges. If there is then you can lie it directly onto the concrete with the appropriate glue. I think 'Sikabond' do a glue which acts as a dpm and glue in one.

    If this is your first time using this sort of method make sure you buy some appropriate adhesive remover (the glue supplier will recommend I'm sure) and keep your towel/notcher as clean as possible at all times.

    Hope it all goes well.

    There's a good chance you'll get it on the flooring itself, so it's always good to have proper wipes/remover that will get it off and not damage the finish on the flooring. You can also use them to clean your tools etc.
